One Little Word | 2014

tenacity  One Little Word 2014: Tenacity

  1. the quality or fact of being very determined; determination
  2. the quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence

Yep, it took me this long to feel comfortable with sharing my word. Truth be told, I had already spent quite some time thinking about my one word for 2014 and came up with jack squat. I even had a false alarm and was all ready to settle in on writing a post about my first word, but something didn’t seem quite right. Go with your intuition; it’s usually right.

I was having a restless night with some odd dreams and in my last dream, the word tenacity popped up and I woke up knowing that this was the word. With so much time being dedicated to a move in the middle of the holidays and going away for CHA, I really had to get my head in the game of what my focus was for the year.

Over the last couple of years, I had forgotten that all the great things in life come with perseverance and dedication. At times, I had lost sight of the things that mattered to me most. I coasted. But I’m ready to work it this year: live in the moment, plan for my future, be open to failure not always completing my goals and definitely taking all new things in.

2013: Balance
2012: Seek 

If you have a word this year, please share with me. I’d love to chat about this.

I’ll be back tomorrow with the latest Your Next Stamp release and on Thursday, I’ll be sharing some goals for 2014.
